Client stories

Want to get a sense of what it’s like to work with me? Here are some stories from my clients.

I’d done therapy in the past, but working with Sasha felt more actionable and relatable. The biggest change since we started working together is that I’ve become bolder. Now, I’m actually dating, which is completely new for me. I’m meeting new people more frequently, too. In the last month I’ve met several men that I’ve seen multiple times: I cannot emphasize enough how that would never have happened for me before working with Sasha. If you are considering working with Sasha, DO IT (all capital letters and tons of emphasis)! You will see so much change in even a short amount of time. Sasha has a gift for helping people quickly realize what they want and why they’re holding themselves back from getting it.”—Lauren, San Francisco

“Sasha is a smart, intuitive, compassionate and practical coach and she has supported my emotional and creative growth in many ways. We have discussed a wide range of topics including relationships, work-life balance, creativity, nonviolent communication, ambivalence about raising a child, and being authentic. I learned new skills and tools through our sessions, which have been more effective than my previous experiences with talk therapy and life coaching. I have grown significantly through working with Sasha and I continue to see tangible changes. I highly recommend working one-on-one with her.”–Grace, Berkeley, Calif.

“Sasha and I worked together earlier this year, and I’m very grateful I took the opportunity to do so. We talked a lot about relationships/dating; I had specifically sought Sasha out after reading about her Quirkyalone movement. Sasha helped me put a number of thorny issues in perspective, gave me helpful and creative ways of processing experiences and thoughts, and generally proved to be a very supportive ally in helping me move forward. I’d highly recommend working with Sasha!”–Kirsten, Washington, DC see review on Yelp

I love how Sasha practices what she preaches, really diving into learning about her own life and using those experiences to help people change their lives to be more in alignment with who they *really* are. She is adventurous, wise, and willing to be vulnerable in her work and practice which for me, is HUGE for anyone who is doing this kind of work. I don’t really trust people with my personal life information that aren’t vulnerable themselves. Her writing is inspiring and real. Her sense of humor and playfulness compliments her depth beautifully. And her curiosity! It’s one of a kind. She asks the important questions and actually cares about the answers. I’ve always been impressed by where we can go in just an hour.

Sasha is someone you want in your life. She has an inspiring and authentic impact. I highly recommend you contact her if you’re looking for an amazing life coach!–Lindsay Chrisler, Oakland, California

After coaching one-on-one with Sasha, I feel a lot more confident embracing who I am and the idea that being single can be just as celebratory as being in a relationship. (Although I like to think of being single as being in a relationship with myself.) There is no sense in feeling “single shame.” I’m also not settling!“–Amanda, Portland, Oregon

“Sasha is highly intuitive, articulate and wise. She listens to what you want at a deep level and has a great way of nudging you along, out of your comfort zone, toward getting what you want in your life. She has helped me to transform many deeply held and limiting beliefs about myself and relationships and opened up my world so that I have a more expansive understanding of what is possible in my life and in my relationships.”–Susan, Maine

“When I first started working with Sasha, I was a few months out of a serious relationship and terrified of being alone. I was scared that I wasn’t going to have the opportunity to have my own family (I recently turned 30). Now, I’m a lot more happy and comfortable in my single life. The biggest epiphany that stands out is the one I had about vulnerability. I’m understanding that vulnerability is beautiful and a strength, not a weakness. I also came to an understanding that I need to stick up for myself more. Working with Sasha was great! Very enlightening and helpful.”–Amanda, 30, New Jersey

“With Sasha’s easy-going, enthusiastic and supportive nature, I gained so much awareness of myself. As a result of working with Sasha, my confidence in myself was sky-high: I changed careers, restarted dating in an open/honest way and I joined a local tango community. I owe much of my new outlook on life and ways of interacting with others to Sasha. I have peace, satisfaction and a true view of my worth. If you are stuck or just can’t get rid of a nagging feeling that your life is moving by without you, Sasha can help like no others.”–Carissa, Florida

“I saw Sasha speak in a CreativeLive online workshop about her Wet book and
her from No Sex to a Healthy Sex Life coaching program. Working with Sasha on my sexuality and sensuality, and my vaginismus, has been enlightening, interesting, fun, emotional, useful, exciting, therapeutic. I am experiencing pleasure that I didn’t know was possible. The coaching gave me a voice to express myself openly and honestly about my barriers so that my partner has a better understanding of where I’m coming from. It’s also opened the conversation to talk about his barriers and how my struggle has affected him. I knew it would be hard to talk things out with a stranger but Sasha made me feel comfortable. I learned so much about myself by talking with Sasha.

Vaginismus, vestibulitis, vulvodynia, whatever the physical sensation that has
been preventing me from having pain-free sex, it was a big hang-up for seven years. Now sex is an important part of my life, and something fantastic about myself that I can experience and share with my partner. The personal journey for me has been amazing and I can’t thank Sasha enough for expanding my understanding of sex, sexuality, sensuality and feeling turned on.”–Lauren, Canada

“Sasha coached me as I transitioned from a married father of three to single divorced dad. Thrown to the single world, I didn’t want to simply admit defeat in the comfort of a not-so-great relationship. I wanted to figure out a productive way to solve uniquely single issues in a safe and secure environment. Sasha was a great life coach, cheerleader, and singles guru. I found Sasha to be smart, open, and good at checking in with where I really was in an intuitive way, which allowed her to make suggestions to me that helped me make changes and improve my life as I found my single guy feet.”–Josh, 38, Atlanta

Sasha’s support and encouragement to look at things from a different perspective in order to really thrive is so refreshing and very powerful. Her encouragement to feel truly comfortable with myself and my vision for a good life provided me with a foundation of loving intention as I entered into my new relationship. I understand that relating to another can have its challenging moments, but with clarity around values and showing up with authenticity, navigating those challenges can be the most rewarding experience. I’m so glad that I found out about Sasha’s fantastic work!”–Hilary, Australia

“I did a one-on-one coaching program Project Enjoy with Sasha. Sasha’s approach is practical, empathetic and pushes you to not only realize what you want but also opens your mind to new concepts and paths. The program is well organized with structured Skype calls, emails and elements customized for my specific goals. I found that the coaching positively impacted all areas of my life – relationships, professional and with myself. Overall my experience with Sasha was extremely rewarding and I would recommend her coaching programs to anyone who is considering.”–Amy, Connecticut

Interesting in coaching?

The most important thing to consider when hiring a coach, guide or therapist is to find someone who you feel understands you. This is the factor that research shows has the biggest impact on a person making positive change.

The first step for us then is to set up a 20-minute introductory phone/Skype call to determine whether we are a good fit.
